As promised, an amazing healthy brownie with zucchini video recipe for this weekend. With lots of chocolate, a different ingredient, extremely spongy and moist.
Do not be sceptical about the zucchini, it is really key to get the texture of a brownie. I made a few trials until I found this recipe to trust me, it is really good!
I gave it to a few friends and they loved it, none of them guessed I added zucchini, so you can try it as well 😉
Send me a picture if you bake it or tag me on Instagram @rootsandcook.
Healthy Brownie with ZucchiniCourse: DessertDifficulty: Easy
200 g zucchini
100 g date caramel
125 g cashew butter (any nut butter)
2 tbs olive oil
40 ml milk
40 g wholemeal flour
50 g cacao powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp cinnamon
30 g chocolate chunks (85% cacao)
50 g chocolate (85%)

- Brownie: See video
- Topping: Melt the chocolate. Add the olive oil and combine. Drizzle brownie with melted chocolate and add roasted cashews.
- Date caramel: Soak pitted dates in hot water (20 ml) for 15 minutes. Add them to a powerful food processor. Blend until you get a creamy-caramel texture. With my Nutribullet it takes 1 minute.
- Cashew butter: Roast cashews in a pan or oven for 15 minutes. Add them to a food processor. Process until very smooth. Pause to scrape down the sides of the bowl every 30 seconds. With my Nutribullet it takes 3-4 minutes.
